Course Description

Zero-Knowledge protocols are important building blocks for more complex cryptographic protocols. This class covers foundational aspects of zero-knowledge proofs inluding:

  • Lower bounds and round complexity
  • Necessary assumptions
  • Communication complexity
  • Zero-Knowledge in a quantum world
  • Theoretical and practical constructions
  • Security Proofs
